II. Choosing the Best Long Beach, CA Therapists

To verify that the 15 therapists listed offer quality mental health care, Online Therapy evaluated them using eight key factors. Each rated well on credentials, specializations, cost, accessibility, and other critical features, ensuring you’ll find the therapeutic support you need at a fair price.

Credentials

Quality of care hinges on a therapist’s credentials proving they have the prerequisite education and counseling experience. The California Board of Behavioral Sciences requires prospective therapists to earn a master’s degree in counseling or psychotherapy, complete 3,000 hours of supervised clinical counseling, and pass two tests before applying for licensure.

Accessibility

Choosing a therapist in Long Beach that practices the type of therapy you need is essential, but you also need one whose accessibility makes them easy to work with. Compare office hours and locations to see which ones are convenient to meet with on your schedule. Each recommended therapist offers remote services, which further enhances accessibility.

Cost

While cost shouldn’t be your sole criterion, staying within your budget is vital to getting all the counseling sessions you need. Therapists in Long Beach often accept major insurance plans, and many provide a sliding fee scale if you’re paying per-session fees out of pocket.

IV. What You Should Know About Long Beach Therapy

How are Long Beach therapists licensed?

In California, the Board of Behavioral Sciences requires prospective therapists to have at least a 60-hour master’s degree in counseling or psychotherapy with very specific coursework required. Graduates must complete 3,000 hours of supervised clinical counseling over a two-year period after registering as an associate professional clinical counselor. They must pass a criminal background check, the California Law and Ethics Exam, and the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination before applying for LPC licensure.

How much does therapy cost in Long Beach?

All the Long Beach therapists listed charge per session with rates averaging about $150; however, some are as low as $100 and others as high as $200. More than half of these therapists offer a sliding fee scale if you’re paying for counseling out of your pocket. Less than half accept private insurance plans, which may help you pay for therapy as a covered mental health service. Many therapists offer a free, initial consultation.
